A friend sent me some upholstery swatch books that she'd saved for a time. I added them to the stash, revisiting them every now and then, but still had no idea just how to use them. It took another friend to see the potential - "Make a quilt for her!" In one instant it was clear.
A beach quilt, named as above.
For a friend who loves the beach.
No batting, backed in a twill I had on hand and tied with embroidery floss at all the corners.
I had four squares left over, perfect for a matching tote to carry it to the beach or park.
Our weather today (65 degrees in Chicago!) had me hoping it gets used soon.
(To that friend: I'm headed to the post office later this week.)
